Kappa Delta Kappa Sorority (ΚΔΚ), also known as KDK, is an American local sorority established in 1938 at Ursinus College in Collegeville, Pennsylvania.[1]


The first meeting of Kappa Delta Kappa was held on November 22, 1938, in the South Hall dormitory (now Musser Hall) of Ursinus College.[2][3] It was established as a social organization that would "create a closer tie between the alumni and the undergraduate women, and to provide a group which will cooperate toward the advancement of Ursinus College."[4][2] Its founders were:[3]

  • Claire Borrell - President
  • Dorothy Cullen - Vice President
  • Elizabeth Funk - Recording Secretary
  • Jean Clawson - Treasurer
  • Lucia Citta - Corresponding Secretary
  • Blanche Schultz - Chaplain


The Greek letters of the sorority stand for beauty (Kappa), justice (Delta), and Purity (Kappa).[3] Its crest features the rose to symbolize beauty, scales for justice, and the dove for purity.[3]

The motto of Kappa Delta Kappa is "a bond that will not falter as the years go by."[1] Its colors are green and gold.[1] Its mascot is the Winking Cat.[1] Its flower is the yellow tailisan rose.


The sorority meets on Sunday nights for its business meeting.[2][1] Members also attend social events and meals three times a week.[1]


Membership in Kappa Delta Kappa is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors at Ursinus College who are non-male identifying genders.[2] It accepts women of any race, sexual orientation, or religion.[1]
